Stream MUTOID MAN’s “Scrape the Walls” over at Decibel!

Oct 08 2013

Great news for all of the folks who have been highly anticipating the release of MUTOID MAN‘s debut album Helium Head: our friends at Decibel Magazine have been so kind as to host a stream premiering the track “Scrape the Walls.”

Also in the piece is some insight from Steve Brodsky on the song itself and how the new band came to be. It’s definitely worth checking out on multiple levels.

PERSEKUTOR : interview & “Power Frost” preview stream at Decibel

Sep 28 2013

As some of you may have heard, we’ve managed to track down the elusively enigmatic Romanian black metal outfit PERSEKUTOR and have made the arrangements to release a special 7″ for them on Black Friday.

Special thanks to Daciana Birladeanu for being our fixer on the ground in Transylvania (and arranging contact with the band) and our attorney Bryan Christner for assistance in clearing PERSEKUTOR from contractual obligations under Thousand Year Reich, their former label. It’s been a long road with a lot of obstacles, but we’re thinking everyone will ultimately agree that the juice was worth the squeeze.

Metal historians will recall that PERSEKUTOR‘s 2006 debut (Angels of Meth) was oft-heralded as one of the best albums of the year, scoring a perfect 10 out of 10 in Decibel Magazine and garnering heaps of praise from Fenriz of DARKTHRONE. Naturally, Decibel continues to be at the forefront of every happening in the metal underground and has already published a rare interview with guitarist Vlad the Inhaler.

As a bonus, we’ve premiered the track “Power Frost” in tandem with said interview.

Enjoy both here:

MUTOID MAN = Steve Brodsky, Ben Koller. Debut album out Black Friday!

Sep 19 2013

Hey dudes.

Ben from CONVERGE and Steve from CAVE IN started a new band. Just the two of them.

It’s called MUTOID MAN and the debut is called Helium Head. The album is a full-on rager far beyond what you think it might sound like. You can get a taste of it via our free mixtape, currently up at on our new Bandcamp page.

Obviously, it’s a complete honor to be doing this record with these guys, as they’re old friends and disgustingly inspiring musicians that simply don’t even understand the concept of sucking. Even better, our mutual buddy Ryan Begley is co-releasing this with us via his Nonbeliever label. We’re all very, very excited and you should be too.

Helium Head hits stores everywhere on November 29, 2013 (Black Friday).

Following the North American tour in late May building up to the album’s release,INTEGRITY dominated Maryland Deathfest, stormed Chaos In Tejas and tore down a row of other cities across the continent, including the band’s first-ever Canadian shows.

ANCIENT VVISDOM August 2013 headlining tour

Jun 24 2013

One of the coolest records we’ve done in recent times would be A Godlike Inferno, by legitimate artistic visionaries ANCIENT VVISDOM.

If you took any other group of metal-heads and hardcore kids and asked them to compose a collection of acoustic-based occult rock anthems, you’d cringe at the results. And yet, somehow, our Texas brethren take it all to a whole new level, earning critical acclaim and insane support slots amongst metal royalty on some of the biggest tours in heavy music each given year.

Aside from infectious recordings and wide accolades, the band at its core is a commanding and highly engaging force on any size stage. In fact, if you haven’t seen them live, you really need to jump on that.

Thankfully, the guys make it easy by touring constantly. Here’s dates for the latest headlining run:


8/4 Houston, TX – Fitzgeralds #
8/5 New Orleans,LA – Siberia #
8/6 Atlanta, GA – Purgatory ^
8/7 Nashville, TN – Exit In ^
8/8 Richmond, VA – Strange Matter ^
8/9 Baltimore, MD – Side Bar ^
8/10 New York, NY – Saint Vitus ^
8/12 Burlington, VT – Metal Mondays @ Nectar’s #
8/13 Montreal, QC – Divan Orange #
8/14 Boston, MA – Great Scott #
8/15 Philadelphia, PA – Kung Fu Necktie #
8/16 Cleveland, OH – Now That’s Class #
8/17 Columbus, OH – Double Happiness #
# with The Saint James Society
^ with The Saint James Society & Bloody Hammer
